What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain which get bonded to the front surface of your teeth to mask a variety of aesthetic flaws with your smile. Your porcelain veneers can be color-matched to the shade of your neighboring teeth, and the dental porcelain used for your veneers will mimic the translucent properties of tooth enamel. As a result, your porcelain veneers will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Dr. Aboulkhair often recommends porcelain veneers to address a variety of common cosmetic dental problems, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked teeth

Your Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Dr. Aboulkhair will customize your porcelain veneers treatment to address your unique needs. He can do as few as one veneer or as many veneers as it takes to overhaul your smile. Dr. Aboulkhair works with Williams Lab in the construction of your porcelain veneers, due to their reputation for delivering exceptional quality restorations. We use E.Max and Empress Veneers, which are made of the strongest, most beautiful materials available. Your porcelain veneers will be hand-crafted by a highly trained ceramist to ensure the best possible results.
At your first visit, Dr. Aboulkhair will prepare your teeth to accommodate the veneers. An impression of your teeth is taken and sent to Williams Lab for use in the construction of your porcelain veneers. Temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth while your permanent ones are being created. Once your porcelain veneers have been crafted, you will return to our Fairfax cosmetic dentistry office to have them bonded to your teeth.
